MAQUET Cardiovascular Receives FDA Clearance for MEGA(TM), the World's First 8Fr. 50cc Intra-Aortic Balloon Catheter
Date:9/23/2009

innovations like the MEGA.

Since the MEGA has no step down between the catheter shaft and the balloon material, it may be inserted sheathless or through an 8 Fr. sheath. Because of its unique design, it can benefit patients presently using both 50cc and 40cc IABs. Additional benefits include a unique Durathane blow-molded balloon membrane, a full-length polyimide lumen with no gas lumen insert, and numerous safety features, such as a T-handle protector to keep the membrane tightly wrapped prior to use.

"We've designed the MEGA to provide outstanding performance for a wider range of patients while reducing the risk for vascular complications," added Keller. "At the same time, we've made it very easy to use for physicians, and we're confident that they'll find it to be a true advance in IAB therapy."

Intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation is an adjunctive therapy that is often used in patients with left ventricular failure and other cardiac conditions. When the IAB inserted into the patient's aorta counterpulsates with the heart, it augments coronary blood flow to increase myocardial oxygen supply and decrease myocardial oxygen demand.

"Since the MEGA is indicated for patients 5'4" and taller, I would generally use it as my standard balloon moving forward," said Dr. Christy. "It's straightforward, easy to insert, and compatible with all the standard consoles."
